5 Wunderbare Cleansers & Balms

Removing your make-up before going to bed or after a long day at work is one of the most important steps on your beauty regimen.

It’s really up to you to use one or a combination of products that will not only remove your make-up but treat your skin before your fall into Morpheus’ arms.

But who is Morpheus anyways? He is a Roman god of sleep and dreams.  So better pamper yourself before going to bed …

If you are like us – busy, always on the run and looking for the top beauty product – the option of having one product to remove all of your make-up quite easily, wash away impurities and leave your skin glowing and clean, then look no further. A Cleanser or Balm will be your best friend.

While massaging and lifting your skin, Cleansers, Cleansing Oils and Balms remove even the most stubborn water proof mascara.

We’ve been trying some products and these are our favourites this summer:


Our Winner, the EMMA HARDIE Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm

The Moringa Cleansing Balm makes for a relaxing and soothing skin ritual; melting away make up to leave skin ‘squeakily’ clean but ethereally soft. With wild sea fennel and vitamin E to rebalance, purify and reduce the appearance of pores, and extracts of jasmine and rose to restore radiance to dull, dehydrated and more mature skin types, this deep cleans to leave your face feeling wonderfully dewy and looking clear, ‘plumped’ and luminous.


LIZ EARLE Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

Enriched with cocoa butter to soften, smooth and moisturise, and rosemary, chamomile and eucalyptus to tone, soothe and purify – this rich, indulgent cream deeply cleanses to instantly remove daily grime, pollutants and make up, even stubborn mascara, to leave skin feeling comfortable, balanced and exceptionally clean.

Used with the pure cotton cloth it gently exfoliates, lifting away dead skin cells to reveal smoother, clearer and brighter-looking skin.


SUNDAY RILEY C.E.O. C+E Micro-Dissolve Cleansing Oil

Suitable for both wet and dry use, this cleansing oil instantly dissolves make up (even the most long-wearing, budge-proof products), pore-clogging debris, excess oil and micro-pollution particles to reveal refreshed, thoroughly cleansed skin. Featuring ingredients that are naturally rich in alpha and beta hydroxy acids and antioxidants, this will ensure that your complexion is cool, calm and collected – as well as super-soft and supple.


Tata Harper’s Nourishing Oil Cleanser has a gentle formula that attracts and dissolves excess sebum, grime and make up residue; purging your pores of impurities without compromising skin’s natural barrier function. Purifying and nourishing, it stars beta carotene, vitamins A, C and E alongside lycopene and strengthening omega 3 – infusing your complexion with a cocktail of essential vitamins and minerals to leave your face super-soft, resilient and radiant. Ideal for dry and more mature skin types, it can be used morning and evening alone, or before a second cleanse with one of Tata’s ‘Refreshing’ or ‘Regenerating’ cream or gel formulas, depending on your skin type and its needs.


ANTIPODES Grapeseed Butter Cleanser

This sleek, minimalist preparation is an enchanting blend of nourishing cacao butter with soothing olive and harakeke oils. Featuring revolutionary Vinanza Grape from New Zealand’s sauvignon blanc grape seeds. Soothing lavender and blue chamomile partner to help calm sensitive skin as well as refresh and cleanse, while hibiscus bloom has gentle exfoliating action. Helps balance oil production and also boost dry and thirsty skin.
